Victoria has been a much-loved member of our customer care team for several years. As well as being a qualified counsellor and CBT therapist, Victoria has undergone extensive training with Compassion Understood on how to help people come to terms with the loss of a pet. She is also trained in trauma counselling and can be a great support to you.
We all know and love Victoria for being the compassionate, sincere and caring person that she is. You can talk to Victoria about how you are feeling in person at our Bromsgrove practice, over the phone or by email if you would prefer.
Dedicated bereavement & support room
We have a dedicated room away from our main waiting area so that you can talk to Victoria in private in a relaxing environment, as well as a number of other comfortable spaces we can provide to you.
With her knowledge of pet health and treatments, Victoria is ideally placed to support you through this difficult time and we encourage you to talk to her about how you are feeling.
When our pets suffer a trauma or become very ill, it can be almost as upsetting as losing them, sometimes more so. Feelings of hopelessness, anger and guilt are very common.
Accidents happen every day and pets can become sick for a variety of reasons. Even if the pet makes a full recovery, negative feelings can sometimes linger, even though the trauma or illness was no-one’s fault.
Talking about how you are feeling can really help you come to terms with what has happened and what needs to happen next, whatever that may be. It can also be a huge comfort just to start talking to someone.
If your pet has been suffering from ill health or has experienced a trauma, making the decision to give your pet a peaceful goodbye and end any suffering they may have been going through, is often the kindest and bravest thing you can do for them.
Some people find it helpful to prepare well in advance of needing end of life care for their pet so that when the time comes, they are better equipped to go through the experience and don’t have to deal with the difficult decisions on the day.
Victoria can talk you through everything that will happen, explain what options you have and provide comfort and support for you and your family with this sensitive subject.
Choosing ahead of time where you wish your pet’s end of life care to take place and what you would like to happen afterwards can free your mind from such worries and allow you to be wholly there for your pet on the day.
Losing a pet suddenly can rock your world whatever their age or the situation. You can be affected by shock and grief in many different ways. Whether you can’t stop crying or can’t cry at all, whether you are angry or feel hopeless, the important thing is to start dealing with your feelings as soon as possible.
Book an appointment with Victoria and let her help you start to unravel your thought process, or if you aren’t ready to talk, write down how you feel in an email to her. The important thing is to start somewhere.
Pet loss affects everyone differently. Bereavement counselling with Victoria is a complimentary service for our clients and their family members who may be struggling to cope with the loss or impending loss of a pet.
I recently registered my cat Custard here and booked her in to be spayed and microchipped. I’m glad I chose this practice, everyone is so nice and caring and communicated every step of the way – even asking me whether I wanted them to operate through her side or tummy (apparently on this breed some owners don’t want a scar on the side). I was pleasantly surprised to receive a follow up call today to check how Custard wasClare Foster, Facebook
Rod, Barbara and your amazing team!
There are not enough words to express our eternal gratitude to you all for saving Bella’s life.
It is not just your profession, you all care and show true love to the animals within your care.
You’ve never got exasperated with our questions or worries and been behind us every step of Bella’s journey. To say she has made a miraculous recovery is an understatement and that’s something I never thought we would be able to say.
Thankyou you all so very much, lots of love to you all xxxxxLiz Curran, Facebook
Highly recommended. Helped save my dog’s life, this weekend. Forever grateful. Great nurses, great vets, great reception staff. Thank you. XxxErica Wilson, Facebook
Clent hills vets are amazing, they’re very professional yet friendly. You know that when you have your pets in their care they are well looked after and in good hands. My rabbit was took in not long ago who sadly passed away and they were so empathetic and caring. Everything I needed in regards to support or any questions I had to ask they answered in detail and sympathetically. I wouldn’t have my pets going to any other vets and have recommended to family and friends who now take their pets to Clent Hills too. Thank you for all the hard work you do.Sadie Goddard, Facebook
Thank you so much to all of the staff at Clent Hills who have given so much love and care to our lovely Zhu Zhu (and us!) over the past 2 weeks, since she lost her leg. We can never thank you nor recommend you highly enough!Angela Kearn, Facebook

Have been at Clent Hills vets for many many years in the past and recently again with our other dog. Can’t say enough good things about the staff and vets there as they are friendly and very professional. I would not go anywhere else.Jason Wedgburrow, Facebook
